Motorcycle Accident Recovery: Mona Rodriguez’s Miraculous Triumph
Mona Rodriguez, a professional soccer player for the Central Florida Crusaders indoor soccer team, is now nearing a full recovery after a motorcycle accident. Over four months ago a pickup truck collided with her motorcycle, inflicting catastrophic injuries. A truck hit Rodriguez while she was riding her motorcycle to the gym, according to a news report. She lost consciousness and was taken to the hospital. There, she was diagnosed with multiple brain bleeds, a broken pelvis, knee, ankle, wrist, and arm. She also had a dislocated hip and shoulder. The accident left her forgetful and confused for months. She was unable to put any weight on her feet for nearly a month and had to relearn how to walk. Only now after an extensive recovery process is she close to regaining normalcy.
Originally from Colombia, Rodriguez moved to the United States to pursue her dream of professional soccer. Police investigations revealed she was not at fault; the pickup truck turned left into her motorcycle without seeing her
Motorcycle Accidents in Florida
Motorcycles lack the protective features of cars, such as airbags and seat belts. In accidents, motorcyclists like Mona Rodriguez suffer severe injuries due to the absence of these safety measures. Even at low speeds, a motorcyclist stands a higher chance of being thrown from their bike. Motorists and motorcyclists alike should remain vigilant on Florida’s streets, with motorists watching for motorcycles, and motorcyclists ensuring their visibility.
